I especially wanted to tell you how amazing Beth was. She showed incredible empathy, listened to my ranting, and never strayed from being professional yet supportive. I thought the statement she wrote on my behalf was incredibly well written. Throughout my dealings with her, she was always honest, always managed my expectations with regards to what the outcome might have been, but perhaps more importantly, I felt she genuinely understood me & I never felt judged. I feel I can trust her implicitly. She made the whole experience less painful than it might otherwise have been.

Many thanks to you for acting for me in this matter. It’s such a sad thing to have to go through but I’ve always been appreciative of how good the service has been, which has made it more humane and easier.

Client on Beth

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for everything you and your colleagues have done for me in the last few months. At times along the way, it’s been very stressful but your support, guidance and expertise have been invaluable.

Client on Beth

You’ve helped me immensely through this ordeal and have made me see things from a pragmatic stand point which I do struggle with so thank you.

Client on Beth

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your support and hard work on my case. I had originally contemplated doing it on my own but I would not have done myself any justice without your help and support throughout the process. Particularly as my circumstances were complicated.

Client on Beth

Thank you so much again – really appreciate the support. A good conclusion indeed.

Client on Beth

Working with you is great. You are calm, empathetic, good-humoured and well-organised. What more could a barrister ask for?
